Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The Grateful Dead and American Culture

"The Grateful Dead created, explored and populated a cultural landscape that continues to thrive in the most familiar and yet unexpected ways more than a decade after the last Grateful Dead show. It is a landscape that has come to include new avenues through which serious (and not so serious) scholarship can intersect with the creative, spontaneous, and celebratory energy for which the Grateful Dead experience is known."

I thought the Forum was, is, could be, one of those avenues.

See you again
Odds are ten to ten
When others are forgotten
Be seeing you again

See you again
when Winter turns to Spring
If I cannot say just when
It's sure as anything

See you again
In all your mighty glow
Young and strong and live again
and ready for a show

See you again
See you again
Generations come and go
Then come around again

Counting up the things that count
on the fingers of one hand
Music, love, and friendship
and the rest of it be damned
In the land that time forgot
where clocks have wooden springs
seven thirty on the dot
can mean a lot of things

Can mean a lot of things, I tell you, mean a lot of things
A lot of things could mean a lot of things could mean a lot
Things could mean a lot of things, remembered or forgot
A lot of things could mean a lot of things and maybe not

It could mean I love you
And want to treat you right
Could mean I got an hour or two
to spread across the night
Could mean I'm lost and lonely
And full of songs unheard
Could mean I want you only
If you only say the word

See you again
See you again
On this you can depend
Be seeing you again

See you again
In all your mighty glow
Young and strong and live again
and ready for a show

See you again
See you again
Generations come and go
Then come around again

Playing out e-ter-nity
A moment at a time
Admission's always free
It don't cost you a dime

See you again
See you again
When others are forgotten
Be seeing you again
